Dianthus

An indispensable genus for the rock gardener, the genus has over 300 species to choose from. We tend to focus on the tight bun types although I have nothing against Carnations; indeed, I am surprised that no one has crossed the large flowered types with the buns. The cushions generally want full sun and good drainage, with perhaps a bit of lime in the soil, other than that they are carefree. Leggy older plants may benefit from the occasional shearing, a service our local bunnies provide from time to time.HARDY TO ZONE____4

Dianthus myrtinervis

Dianthus myrtinervis

Typical myrtinervis much tighter and more compact than deltoides but not as tiny as caespitosus, this is an excellent plant and the slightly larger mats may actually look better in the rock garden.
